Pros None - well it appeared to work good enough when i was moving my data onto the drive.
Cons The drive has stopped working after a very short period of time, all of my data will be lost and I have to pay to have the defective product shipped back to Seagate.
Summary It worked long enough for me to copy information on to the drive (about 4 hours) but it doesn't work now. Now I need to send the drive back to Seagate for replacement, which I have to pay for, and all of my data will be lost.
Pros - I could pay $130 to buy a "Data Recovery" program from them.
Cons - Why should I have to pay for anything as it relates to their defective drive!
Pros Fast, quiet, compact, feels well built.
Cons Only the software, IMO the Memeo software is a disaster
Summary I like this drive, but for the provided back-up software caused so much pain that that I had to give it a low rating. It trashed my new $2,000 Vaio and I had to rebuild the SSD from back-up disks. For some silly reason, I tried to install Memeo on my new "best component" desktop, (Seagate Momentus XT drive) same problem, but at least I was able to restore from four restores back. This was a real shame, because in my experience Seagate software has always worked so sweetly in the past.
The USB 3 accessory is cool, although I am not convinced it is much faster, perhaps the higher transfer speed exceeds the read/write capability of the drive.
Pros Drive works well-WHEN it works,
Cons Memeo software constantly loses track of the drive. Memeo customer service slow to help.
Summary Backing up is pretty simple. Software menu system is a bit bloated. Password system is redundant. Says you can access your files from "anywhere in the world." I'd be happy if it could just find the darned drive within the house! Many restarts of router, backup drive and laptop required to backup. Doesn;t leave me with a secure feeling for a backup drive. Most of the time it indicates it cannot find the drive on the network, yet I can access files from the desktop. Whatever, returning it and not buying another Seagate product.
Pros I guess the multiple connectors would be counted as a pro. 1.5 terrabyte.
Cons What happened to 5 yr warrantys! Bad descision on someones part at Seagate Corporate. This was always a easy sale to my customers when I used to be able to say 5 yr warranty, now I have to talk them out of Western Digitals that sell cheaper. Way slow tra
Summary I, as a computer guru, find myself consistently backing up all of my customers data. As bigger drives come out, I buy them.
I was very happy with the 1 terrabyte Freeagent Go that I have and would would give that 10 stars if the rateing went that high, but this new drive really leaves alot to be desired. It really is slow as far as transfer rates on usb 2.0 ports, and when I say slow I mean it.
Not enough people have computers that even utilize usb 3.0 ports yet to begin with, so I really think this issue needs to be addressed, as the bulk of the people that do purchase this product, will more then likely have 2.0 ports on thier computers. I have always been a big supporter of Seagate, but this time I think that they have overhyped this product.
"- Seagate (poor)"on by usavyadams
Pros None...nothing good.
Cons I have had 2 Seagate products, the latter being the GoFlex & after 7 days it crashed. Called tech support & would cost $150 to get the stuff of the drive. Bought from Office Depot.....will never buy a Seagate product again.
